Maura Higgins plans heartbreak holiday with pals to 'shake off' ex Giovanni Pernice
MAURA Higgins is planning a heartbreak holiday with pals as she vows to “shake off” ex lover Giovanni Pernice.
We revealed earlier this week how the Love Island beauty was left heartbroken when the Strictly dancer called time on their relationship after just a few months.
Now sources say she is planning to jet off with pals who are rallying round to support her.
One pal said: “Maura was upset that things ended with Giovanni. But she’s young, gorgeous and has absolutely no intention of doing a Bridget Jones and locking herself away for weeks sobbing her heart out.
“She’s already discussing a break away with pals for a change of scenery and to try and shake off what’s happened.”
Friends say Maura – who is being linked with a stint on I’m A Celebrity – is also refusing to give up on the idea of finding “the one”.
“Maura hasn’t been scarred for life by what happened with Gio,” the pal said. “She still firmly believes there is a guy out there for her. And whoever does end up with Maura will be very lucky.”
The pair were said to have struggled to keep their relationship going while Giovanni was locked in rehearsals with EastEnders actress Rose Ayling-Ellis, 26.
A pal said: “Maura’s taken a step back to let Giovanni concentrate on the show.”
The Sun revealed how it was Giovanni who ended the romance – because he wasn’t ready to settle down.
And Maura was left blindsided by the split, which came just days after they moved in together, and is “utterly heartbroken”.
She deleted all trace of the Italian from her social media, telling pals she “has to move on” from their four-month romance.
A source said: “Maura didn’t see this coming and is finding it very difficult to come to terms with. She genuinely thought Gio was the one.”
The pair are believed to have split two weeks ago after heart-to-heart talks.
It is believed Giovanni admitted he had become concerned the pair’s “crazy suitcase lives” meant they weren’t able to see enough of each other.
